There is a patch from September 2014: Use find instead of tree to search 
for cmd_find

Needless to say that I support this change :)

Don’t know what platform you are on, but on Mac OS X I use an Alfred 
workflow¹ which has the advantage that you get live feedback on your 
abbreviation matching, as I wouldn’t trust that the algorithm always 
gets it right.
